Re: [NEEDS INPUT] Computer pie menu takes a long time to come up

★★★ Newbie

I play on console and this has been happening to me. As soon as I press on a lap top or desktop my game goes into shock and I can’t interact with anything.

Computer Pie menu delay

★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.63.136.1210
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Every expansion pack, every game pack except strangerville. Stuff packs: cool kitchen, spooky stuff, movie hangout, kids room, backyard, vintage glamour, toddler, my first pet, Moshcino, tiny living, holiday pack
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I have no idea
What happens when the bug occurs? Every time I click on a computer or tablet, there’s a delay of about 40 seconds before the menu pops up. This isn’t game lag because no other objects have a delay and the game is running without any issues or slowness. (The toddler tablet does not have this delay but the adult tablet does)
What do you expect to see? Computer menu pops up immediately when clicked
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. I downloaded eco lifestyle and the new patch

This issue started a few weeks ago around the same time that all of the NAP eco lifestyle bugs started happening in my game. Now that I’ve disabled NAPs and NPC voting and gotten rid of those issues, this bug is really starting to bother me. Whenever I click on a computer the menu doesn’t come up for about 20-30 seconds. Sometimes I feel like it comes up quicker if I rotate the camera on the screen but that might be in my head.

Sims computers Unusable...

★★★ Apprentice

My Sims INGAME Computers are unusable.  Whenever I click on one, no options come up and the entire game lags.  This can be a laptop or a desktop.  Any fix for this?

Re: [NEEDS INPUT] Computer pie menu takes a long time to come up

Here is my experience with this bug:

When I click the computer it takes the menu takes 3-5 seconds to pop up

My current work around is to pause the game when I need to add something dealing with the computer to a sim's queue.

Please fix this issue as soon as possible. Thank you in advance for fixing it Standard smile

Also, my guess for a possible reason this is happening is that some of the code has gotten into the game from Plopsy early and it was just overlooked, but I'm not a programmer, so I'm not sure if that is even possible lol.

Hello.

 

I heard that the July 8 patch (PC/Mac version 1.64.84, console version 1.28) improved this.  Is anyone still seeing this issue (without mods)?

If so, is it improved when removing items from the inventory?

★ Guide

I always thought A slightly in the menu was normal, but if you find it slow, one way to speed it is to go to Options and set UI Sounds to 0%, since it doesn't have to decode a sound click or pop to play, this speeds up UI response time greatly.
